In this study, we describe the antitumor activity of QO-1, one of the new 2-aryl-1,4-naphthoquinone-1-oxime methyl ether derivatives. QO-1 is a derivative of macarpine, a natural occurring product from Rutaceae plant. It could potently inhibit cell growth when tested on 19 cancer cell lines. To investigate its mechanism, two cell lines (HeLa and MCF-7) sensitive to QO-1 were selected. Based on flow cytometry, it was found to induce G2/M-phase arrest. Moreover, it could cause microtubule depolymerization both in vitro and in vivo. On the other hand, QO-1 activated spindle assembly checkpoint (SAC) proteins. Expression of Bub1, one of the SAC, was gradually increased, reaching a peak after 16 - 20 h, and then gradually decreased. Instead, QO-1 increased the sub-G1 population, which suggested a cell death population. Actually, expression of Bcl-2 family proteins and activation of caspase-3/7 were evidences of apoptosis. Consistent with these results, cells with DNA fragmentation and multinucleated cells were increased timedependently after QO-1 exposure. In conclusion, QO-1 has promising antitumor effects via microtubule depolymerization.
